Hull’s C4DI gets innovative with Encasement

Hull’s landmark Centre for Digital Innovation (C4DI) is using ‘Polyma’ GRP column casings from Encasement to conceal external structural steelwork of the building.

Below the striking bronze PPC coated aluminium exterior, which also incorporates a range of sustainable and energy saving technologies, each of the building’s nine structural steel supports are concealed by a 450mm diameter Polyma glass reinforced polymer column casing.

Manufactured by Encasement to the precise specifications using hand laid GRP moulding techniques, the Polyma casings are finished in gloss RAL 7004 Signal Grey and range in height from 3,600mm up to 4,000mm to meet the building’s design parameters.

As the column casings are used externally and close to sea water, the Polyma casings are an ideal choice for this application as they are highly durable, as well as being resistant to corrosion, weathering and damage.
